Introduction

Get the young ones eating healthy by making them a part of the action! This is a fool-proof dinner for youngsters to help with or a teen to make by themselves.

Teens: Impress your parents and make dinner! (If you're nervous about the chicken, just cook it for a longer time after the beans are added. And add water here and there if it starts to dry out.)

Also goes great with Whole Wheat Pasta!

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 cups Canned Northern Bean
    3 cups Petite Diced Tomatos
    18 oz. Chicken Breast
    5 oz (1/2 package) Spinach
    1.5 Tbls Olive oil

Directions

Makes about 8 1-cup servings.

Prep:
Open cans.
Rinse beans thoroughly.
Cut chicken into 1" cubes.

Cook:
Saute chicken in olive oil on Medium High heat until almost or fully cooked. (Letting it brown a little will add flavor.)
Add tomatoes (undrained).
Stir occasionally, let the tomatoes warm up.
Add beans.
Change temperature to Medium.
Stir occasionally, let the beans warm up.
Reduce temperature to Low.
Add spinach, mix, cover and let simmer until desired thickness.

Season to taste though I find the canned beans usually have enough salt to not add any extra to the dish.


***Goes well served over whole wheat pasta. (The beans help cover up the not as preferred whole wheat flavor.)***
